Freeze Frame by J. Geils Band

I could see it was a rough-cut Tuesday
Slow-motion weekdays stare me down
Her lipstick reflex got me wound
There were no defects to be found
Snapshot image froze without a sound

Thursday morning was a hot-flash factor
Her face still focused in my mind
Doo-dloo-dloo
Test-strip proofsheet love is hard to find

Doo-dloo-dloo
Friday night, we danced the spotlight grind
Doo-dloo-dloo
Stop time heart for me if she's not mine

Freeze frame, freeze frame
Freeze frame, freeze frame
Freeze frame, freeze frame
Freeze frame, whoo, and I freeze

Now I'm looking at a flashback Sunday
Zoom lens feeling just won't disappear
Doo-dloo-dloo
Close up, dark room, sweet talk in my ear

Doo-dloo-dloo
Her hot-spot love for me is strong
Doo-dloo-dloo
This freeze-frame moment can't be wrong

Freeze frame, freeze frame
Freeze frame, freeze frame
Freeze frame, freeze frame
Freeze frame, whoo, and I freeze

Shoot, shoot - doo-dloo-dloo
Shoot, shoot - doo-dloo-dloo
Shoot, shoot - doo-dloo-dloo

Freeze frame, freeze frame
Freeze frame, freeze frame
Freeze frame, freeze frame
Freeze frame, whoo, and I freeze

Yeah

Freeze frame, oh yeah, freeze frame
If I could freeze frame, freeze frame, freeze frame
If I could freeze, she's real, whoo, freeze frame
If I could freeze, she's ahhh, freeze frame
If I could shoot, shoot - doo-dloo-dloo, freeze frame
If I could shoot, shoot - doo-dloo-dloo, freeze frame

JESUS, MEET MR. GEILS. MR. GEILS, jESUS. MR. GEILS WILL BE PROVIDING TONIGHT'S MUSIC. SHINE ON YOU CRAZY CENTERFOLD

Man. I remember this video. I loved it so much. Especially the paint. I worshiped Peter Wolf as a kid. He was my hero for a good long stretch. A stupid song but harmless enough. I do like the way the lyrics sound at least. Rough cut Tuesday. I dig that

My sister had the 45 of Angel is a Centerfold & I listened to it a lot

On the day of J Geils passing I learned how to play that song

- It's now becoming a regular song in my nightly 'Concerts for the Cats Who Don't Care"

I dug this song too as well as the paint montage in the video - good times

Hell, I loved all their videos

Rage in the Cage & Love Stinks were a few more great songs

I always loved this band and they made it onto many a mix tape in my youth
